Valve Body Tech
There are many options available when choosing a valve body for your TH400. When using a true "automatic" valve body you must have a constant minimum source of 14in/lbs of vacuum going to the modulator at all times. This especially holds true in Turbo-Charged or Super-Charged engine applications that run little to no vacuum. If you have one of these engines strongly suggest running a Full Manual valve body which will eliminate all need for vacuum, or at the very least utilizing a vacuum pump. Offer "automatic" valve bodies in 2 variations: Manual/ Auto which is a firm shift that can be manually shifted, and will hold manual 1st and 2nd gears, great for a hot rod application. Also offered is the "Fully Automatic" HD shift which removes the delay out of the shift, ideally suited for RV or towing type applications.
